Housed in the former TWA Flight Center, the TWA Hotel will transport JFK travelers back to 1962. The Eero Saarinen-designed terminal has been closed since 2001, but the beloved landmark is returning in the form of 505 boutique accommodations. The guest rooms will be housed in a new construction in the rear, while the original terminal — which consists of interiors designed by mid-century legends Charles Eames, Raymond Loewy, and Warren Platner — is getting restored back to its former glory. The plans also include eight restaurants, conference and event space, a 10,000 square foot public observation deck, and a museum that will highlight the Jet Age, Trans World Airlines, and Midcentury Modern design.
